How Hoarseness Can be Treated

DOHNS(LONDON) -, DNB (ENT) -, MS-ENT, MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist
Ask Free Question
Hoarseness in the simplest sense means, 'hoarse voice'. It may be defined as an abnormal voice change. It is experienced in the form of strained, rough, thick, harsh and grating voice. Variations can be felt even in the loudness and pitch of the voice.

Hoarseness is a temporary infection associated with the larynx, which is also known as the voice box in animals as well as humans. Vocal cords are present inside the voice box. Depending on the vibration of the vocal cord, different sounds are produced.

What are the general causes of hoarseness?

Hoarseness may be caused by common cold, viral infection, cough, irritation due to screaming, smoking, allergy, thyroid problem, acute laryngitis and benign tumor. In adults, the stomach asset comes up to the throat causing hoarseness. Heartburn can also be one of the causes.

When hoarseness arises due to common cold and cough, it will last for 2 to 3 days and will subside using cough suppressant and home remedies like salt water gargling, drinking hot milk with turmeric and pepper powder. As cough or cold suppress, hoarseness will also reduce.

When to see an Otolaryngologist (ENT specialist)?

ENT stands for ear, nose, throat. Serious infections in these areas are treated by an otolaryngologist. It is very essential to consult this specialist if hoarseness lasts for more than 2 to 3 weeks; pain in ENT is not due to cold or flu, coughing up blood, lump in the neck.

Evaluation

The medical specialist starts his diagnosis by physically examining the vocal cord. Flexible light weight fiber optic tube scope is also used to visually examine the larynx area. Videotaping, acoustic analysis is also done to study voice irregularities, airflow to guide treatment.

How can hoarseness be treated?

The mode of treatments depends on underlying the cause of the problem. The patient may be advised:

In most cases, hoarseness can be treated just by resting your throat or modifying the use of your voice.
To avoid smoking or passive smoking
Referred to a speech therapist to improve sound of voice.
In case of benign tumor the nodule or polyp is removed by surgery.
How can you prevent hoarseness?

We've all heard the phrase, 'prevention is better than cure'. Alas, it is. Preventing hoarse voice and throat is a much better option than treating it. Here are some tips on how to prevent hoarseness:

Avoid smoking
Avoid overconsumption of caffeine and alcohol.
Consume plenty of water
Avoid eating spicy food.
Avoid speaking loudly for long intervals of time.

Tinnitus can indeed be a very troublsome. I have been seeing a lot of tinnitus patients, the most important factor is to determine whether it is associated with hearing loss or not. Get a pure tone audiometry and consult me with the report. There are a lot of tinnitus retraining strategies which can help your mother.

Hello welcome to lybrate. We are here to help you. You seem to be suffering from upper respiratory tract infection (urti). At home, you can do warm saline gargles, steam inhalation. You should drink hot fluids like ginger tea, that will soothe the pain. But in case you have fever then you should see your doctor who will examine you and prescribe an antibiotic like azithromycin or amoxycillin. You can continue cetrizine that you are taking for net 2-3 days. In case of severe pain, you can add a tablet of aspirin in water and do gargles with that. You may take paracetamol on as or when required basis for fever and body pains. Share my opinion with your doctor before you act upon it. I hope it helps. Stay healthy.

Ear hygiene and cleanig

There is a tradition in lot of families to clean ears regularly with ear buds or q tips and those who don't do it are many times considered nonhygeinic. But it may risk hearing ability. Inside ear is a very delicate structure and is likely to be damaged easily even with trivial trauma.

First we must understand that wax has a useful role to play in the ear, it lubricates protects and renders antiseptic proerty. Ears without wax feel dry and itchy. Wax is selfcleaned from our ear canal propagated by movements of the jaw. So most of the times there is never any need to clean wax from inside the ears. Only external surface of the ear should be cleaned with cloth.

Many times attempt to clean ears with ear buds results injury to delicate skin of ear canal and even worse it may injure the eardrum or if there is a wax chunk it may push ddep into the eardrums.

Earwax needs to cleaned only when it obstructs the sound pathway to ear drum. When there is feeling of fullness or blockage or pluuged, there is partial hearing loss there is ringing in the ears or tinnitus or noise in the ear or there is itching or odour in the ear.

Many times home remedies are useful to remove ear wax like instilling drops of mineral oil glycerine or commercially available drops. If not successful than it should be removed by ent surgeon. Ent surgeon may wash earwaxout with warm water or saline. Sometimes ent surgeon may remove wax by suction or microinstruments under microscope. There is no proven remedy for frequent wax impaction but it is very important to avoit inserting any object inside ear to clean wax. Those who get frequent wax impaction or using hearing aids may need to see ent surgeon every 6 to 12 months to clean wax regularly.

Hi, kindly first try with home remidies like gargles with luke warm water and salt in it. Do gargles at least 2-3 times in a day and don't have anything cold after gargles for at least 30 min.

Take thick soups which soothes your throat and again don't take anything cold after soups for at least 30 - 45min.

Your pain may be caused by OTITIS EXTERNA, an infection of the ear canal that is also called swimmer's ear. See your doctor. Keep your ear dry while it's healing. Putting a warm heating pad over your ear may help relieve the pain.
